At University of Missouri Health Care, General ENT (Otolaryngology) is both a starting point and a destination for patients as issues are identified and treatment strategies are developed.
Many first time patients begin in General Otolaryngology for initial assessment and investigation. Some patients will remain in General Otolaryngology throughout the course of therapy and follow-up, while some patients may be referred to other specialists within our department, as needed, to address specific problems and conditions. For example, a patient with a complex ear problem would be referred to the Otology service, or a patient with a sinus problem may be referred to the Rhinology service.
General Otolaryngology concentrates on both surgical and non-surgical treatment of a wide variety of head and neck disorders in adults and children
- Infections and lesions of the tonsils and adenoids
- Oral lesions and taste disorders
- Throat and swallowing disorders
- Voice problems: vocal cord and larynx infections, voice disorders, breathing and cough
- Neck lesions, nodules and cysts
- Salivary gland disease including infections, stones, nodules and inflammatory disorders
- Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea
